Self-drive holidays to Australia could get easier thanks to a pioneering new system designed to help tourists.

Self-drive holidays to Australia could get easier thanks to a pioneering new system designed to help tourists.

The South Australia Tourism Commission is to provide GPS virtual tour guides for hire, which will plug into the cigarette lighter of a vehicle and will point out exciting points along the Fleurieu Way.

Available from selected visitor information centres, the tour guides help people to navigate their way along the 256 kilometre route, enjoying Strathalbyn for antique hunting or Granite Island for the penguins and fresh produce.

In addition, a visit to McLaren Vale could be a particular highlight, since it is the home to a number of award-winning wineries.

For anyone intending to make use of the GPS devices in April, a trip to Yankilla for the Leafy Sea Dragon Festival may also be an interesting thing to do.

Running from April 17th to 26th, the event contributes to the future of the creatures and their habitat.

The official website states that 10,000 people attended in 2007.
